Sonic postcards from Paris

Once a week, the DJ DinahBird walks Paris streets with a group of kids from the area of Chateau Rouge out to capture city sounds. She says attention is a problem, puts mikes and recorders in to the hands of the 6-11 year-olds and gets them sit still long enough to edit 'sonic postcards' of collected sound stuff for us in 'Audacity' (open source soft ware). These tracks of Paris footage are the beginnings of an exchange with 'no-go-zones'. The kids took to it as a challenge: 'go where you'd normally not go, do what you'd usually not do!', for example, asking workers in the street to sing a song to them and their mikes. More's to come...
